Along with the top-end GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card and the entry-level GeForce RTX 3050, Nvidia today unveiled two more desktop graphics cards: the GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB and the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB. Rumors about them have been circulating for a long time, and now it has come to the official premiere. It should be said right away that the matter was not limited to a simple increase in the amount of memory.
The GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB, in fact, received a new GPU with 8960 CUDA cores, 280 Tensor cores and 70 Ray Tracing cores. The usual GeForce RTX 3080 with 10 GB of memory has them, respectively, 8704, 272 and 78. It is equally important that the width of the memory bus of the new item is 384 bits versus 320 bits for the model with 10 GB of memory. This resulted in a significant increase in memory bandwidth – by 20% or up to 912 GB / s. The memory chips remained the same – GDDR6X with a frequency of 19 GHz, but the TDP value increased slightly – from 320 to 350 W.
In general, the GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB differs from the GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB, much more than one might think looking at the name.
In the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16 GB, the amount of improvements is more modest. The GPU configuration has not changed, the memory bus width is still the same 256 bits. But along with the increase in volume, the memory frequency also increased: instead of chips with a frequency of 19 GHz, chips with a frequency of 21 GHz are used. As a result, the memory bandwidth increased from 608 to 672 GB / s. The TDP value has also become higher – by about 10 watts.
The cost of new products has not been reported. Sales will start in the first quarter of this year.
World’s first 31″ domed OLED display and 65″ curved 8K monitor unveiled
TCL CSOT announced a number of new displays, including an interesting new domed OLED gaming monitor for PC.
The new gaming monitors were unveiled at DTC 2023 (Global Display Tech-ecosystem Conference 2023), which is taking place in Wuhan, China. The new gaming monitor is equipped with a 31-inch dome-shaped OLED panel with a resolution of 4K and a frequency of 120 Hz, and the dome shape, according to the developers, allows you to give a 3D feeling. There are very few details about the model yet.
Jun Zhao, CEO of TCL CSOT, said: “With significant advances in display technologies including LCD and OLED, we have made remarkable breakthroughs to provide superior user experience. We will continue to provide high-quality products for a variety of scenarios, working closely with our industry partners.”
The company also introduced a 27-inch 8K monitor with eye tracking and 3D support.
The world’s first curved OLED IJP monitor with a 65-inch diagonal, 8K resolution and a frequency of 120 Hz was announced. Its resolution is 7680 x 4320 pixels.
It also unveiled the world’s first 14-inch hybrid laptop with a 2.8K OLED IJP screen that supports an adaptive refresh rate of 30-120Hz.
Small, but remote. Corsair unveils SSD MP600 Micro in M.2 2242 form factor
Most modern solid-state drives have the M.2 2280 form factor, but sometimes you need a much more compact SSD – M.2 2242. Corsair did just that.
In the photo you can see the MP600 Micro model in the specified form factor. The length of such a drive is 42 mm, although there is also an M.2 2230 that is only 30 mm long.
The new product supports PCIe 4.0 and is characterized by data transfer speeds of up to 5100 MB/s for reading and 4300 MB/s for writing. Performance is respectively 600,000 and 890,000 IOPS. These parameters are typical for the 1 TB model, which also has a resource of 600 TBW.
It remains to add that the new product is based on 176-layer Micron 3D TLC NAND memory and is priced at $70.
Huawei defeated American sanctions: the Chinese company now has its own 5-nanometer processor
Five years under strict American sanctions, which cut Huawei off from advanced single-chip systems, have yielded results: the company has its own 5-nanometer processor made in China.
There is an interesting story with this processor. Five days ago, Huawei introduced the Qingyun L540 laptop based on the Kirin 9006C SoC: and at that time, all the characteristics of the device were revealed, but nothing was reported about the central element of the hardware platform. Now Huawei has updated the description on the website, which clearly states that the Kirin 9006C is manufactured using the 5 nm process technology.
The official description says that the single-chip system has eight cores and a maximum frequency of 3.13 GHz. The Gizmochina resource adds: the CPU is made according to a two-cluster design – with four Arm Cortex-A77 cores and four more Arm Cortex-A55 cores.
Let’s remember that earlier Huawei had a 7-nanometer SoC Kirin 9000S, and it is used in the flagships of the Mate 60 line. Kirin 9000S is produced by SMIC, and the same company most likely produces the 5-nanometer Kirin 9006C.
